We support higher education clients and the trade media with quality editorial and news, including native English-language copy-editing and original storytelling.

Journalism

Among recent areas covered for University World News:

Blogs

Blogs have looked at the  student housing crisis in Europe, to why Crimea matters so much to Putin in his war with Ukraine, to a more light-hearted piece on just how hard can it be to give up alcohol.

For the European higher education PR network, EUPRIO, we’ve blogged about the communication challenges of reopening campuses as the second wave of the coronavirus swept across the continent and why universities need closer collaboration between PR and marketing department and international offices to boost their reputation on the world stage. 

Our founder, Nic Mitchell, also provided advice for coping with self-isolation at the start of the COVID-19 lockdowns, based on his experience working from home while fighting cancer during 2015.

Awards

In the same year, Nic won the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Outstanding Higher Education Journalism Award for his report for BBC news online on the East-West European brain drain looking at Lithuania.

Research communications

Working with Times Higher Education special supplements, we’ve interviewed American scientists fighting malaria in the South Florida swamps and the pioneering quantum physicist and Australian of the Year Professor Michelle Simmons on creating a super computer using silicon at the University of New South Wales.

We also worked as sub-editors to help get the English-language editions of FORUM, the research magazine of Charles University, Prague off the ground.

and produced sparkling original copy from interviews with researchers and students for universities in Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

So, if you work in higher education communications and need our help get in touch with Nic Mitchell.
